I'm gonna stop trying. It never gets me anywhere. I try and I try and in the end, I find I am doing just that, trying. I know what you're thinking, but it isn't that. I'm not giving up giving up. I'm giving up trying. Instead, I'm going to stop trying and start living as if. Now I can almost hear you thinking, what the heck is he talking about. But I think some of you get it. As long as I keep trying, I'll never do or be whatever it is I keep trying to do or be. Let me try to explain.
When I say I am trying to do something, it means I am stuck in that...trying. Trying to do something means not ever succeeding at doing it. I try to understand this idea, but I don't until I accept the fact that it not something to be understood. It is something to be accepted. It is was it is. Most things just are. There may not be any explanation. That's where faith comes in. Trust too. Believing in yourself. That is more than trying. That is knowing...knowing that it is what it is and accepting the fact that we may never know more than that. Ultimately, what would it change to know the why of things?
So that is what I mean by giving up trying. Just doing. That's the ticket. Surrendering into the mystery and accepting the wonder as part of the condition of life. Without it, it would probably get awfully boring.
So maybe like in that old commercial said about Life cereal back in the '70s, we can be like Mikey and try it, we'll like it.
